IS THE PACK YOU WANT UNAVAILABLE?
It's difficult to predict exactly how much pork and lamb we will have available, so we tend to be conservative with our pre-orders. Click on the 'Notify me when back in stock' button and we'll alert you if we have additional packs available before pick-up date. 

-------

We are proud to offer the only free-range, ethically raised pork and lamb produced locally within the Illawarra!

Free-range pork and lamb packs provide customers with a diverse range of cuts to enjoy and ensures no meat from the animals that live on our farm goes to waste.

Mixed pork and lamb packs will contain approximately 45% lamb and 55% pork. See drop-down menu below for a sample list of cuts. 

We pre-sell our free-range meat packs so customers can pick-up their orders fresh as soon as they have been expertly butchered and packed. Packs usually sell out in advance, so order early to avoid disappointment!

Our next free-range meat packs will be available for pick up from Monday 27 November to Wednesday 29 November (7am-6pm, daily) from Cleaver and Co Quality Meats in Gwynneville. Meat can also be frozen for later pick-up, if needed.

Would you like to pre-order a Christmas Ham as well? If so, you'll have to order these products in 2 different orders since the pick-up locations are different.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

About our Free-range meat

Green Connect is proud to offer sustainable and ethical pork and lamb

Our animals play an important role on the farm by helping us to manage weeds and pests, regenerate the soil with their manure, and reduce food waste. They roam through fresh pastures, feast on leftover produce, live in sunshine, roll in grass and mud, and act like animals.

They also help us to better utilise our marginal land, diversity our income, create more jobs for former refugees and young people, and teach visitors to our farm about how we can farm animals in more ethical and integrated ways.

Click here to find our more about why we farm animals on the Green Connect farm.

We pride ourselves on the quality of meat we produce.

Multiple times year, we sell free-range pork and lamb packs to the community. These packs include a variety of cuts so that no parts of our animals go to waste.

Partnering with the talented Cleaver & Co Craft butcher, we ask Lachy (the butcher) to make 5kg & 10kg packs of different cuts so that every customers receives a variety of delicious meat to enjoy. All meat products are gluten and preservative-free.

Please note: exact cuts and weights may vary

Can I choose specific cuts?

Unfortunately not. Our animals have only so many sections that can be made into specific cuts. We want to make sure that the whole animal is appreciated and nothing is wasted so we only sell mixed packs. It also means the different cuts can be shared between all of our customers.

Is it free-range?

Yes! All the meat we sell comes from the pigs and sheep raised on our permaculture farm in Warrawong. We move them around different areas of the farm so they can feast on overgrown vegetable beds, and eat leftover fruit, vegetables and plants. This also helps us to regenerate and fertilise the soil, so it's a win-win!

Is it gluten- and preservative-free?

Yes! All pork and lamb cuts are gluten and preservative free.

How is the meat priced?

In setting the price for our free range pork and lamb, we considered both the market value for similar products as well as what it actually costs us to ethically and sustainably raise or pigs and lambs. As a not-for-profit social enterprise dedicated to growing fair food and creating jobs for former refugees and young people, we are committed to paying our staff award wages for the hours they work.

Do I need to pre-pay?

Yes. Prepayment is needed for us to reserve your order for you.

What do I need to bring when I pick up my meat pack?

Remember to bring a cool bag to keep your meat nice and cold until you can get it into your fridge or freezer.

How big is a 10kg pack?

A 10kg pack fits in 25 cubic centimetres – about a third of a freezer compartment of an average household fridge-freezer.
